Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy
Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is a relatively new treatment for those with treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD and suicidal drive. While it is not yet an FDA-approved treatment, numerous studies have found it to be effective in decreasing depressive symptoms and suicidal ideation. Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy combines the therapeutic effects of ketamine with the support and safety available through the therapeutic relationship.

Combining ketamine with psychotherapy can provide a pathway to awareness free from ingrained patterns, inhibitions and old narratives. Ketamine’s psychedelic properties can help bring emotions to the surface, giving us a closer look into the unconscious mind.

Those who have been prescribed ketamine by an authorized healthcare provider may choose to schedule special therapy sessions during which the prescribed medication is taken. Doing so can, in many cases, facilitate trauma-resolution work - particularly for those experiencing difficult-to-treat depression symptoms.
I find that Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) helps to support deeper transformation because it gets people out of their heads and helps them to hold their 'stuff' with more detachment. This disruption to the narratives we construct allows one to be able to see alternative perspectives and supports removing barriers to living our most expressed life.
